The 42nd loss of the year secured the franchise that it is only one more step away from tying the team-record of five-straight losing seasons, set twice early in the team's NBA lifespan (1975-80, 1981-86). Great times in Pacers land.
Let's get right to the links after the jump. Wash out last night's game with a helping of the Suns tonight in Phoenix. It's sure to be a good time for all.

Karl praises bench after easy victory
The Denver Post examines the "easy" victory over an overmatched Pacers squad. As much as I love seeing so much sympathy from opposing teams about our plight, after reading these stories for 42 losses this season, they're starting to get old.
As expected... (Nuggets/Pacers recap) - Denver Stiffs
The Denver Stiffs recaps the game from the Nuggets perspective. Here are their thoughts on coach Jim O'Brien: "The Pacers have some (emphasis on some) talent, but O'Brien is out of his league trying to coach this team. Given that all of the Pacers core players are due to be paid next season, too, the Pacers should fire O'Brien now, bring in Avery Johnson and develop a more intense, defensive mentality in Indianapolis. Until this team takes playing NBA basketball seriously, they're going nowhere anytime soon." Amen.
